The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, and the Saudi Foreign Minister, Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, held a meeting on Friday to discuss bilateral relations and regional issues.

“A powerful Turkey-Saudi partnership benefits not only our nations but the whole region,” Çavuşoğlu said, adding Ankara attached significance to its bilateral ties with Riyadh.
In a phone talk last week, the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and the Saudi King, Salman bin Abdulaziz, discussed bilateral ties. They agreed to improve relations and keep a dialogue channel open to resolve ongoing disputes.
A top Turkish diplomat said he attended the Youth Council of Foreign Ministers organized by the OIC in a separate post.
“With such gatherings, one can feel the energy of the Muslim youth,” he said. “The Ummah believes in the youth’s energy to cope with challenges.”
